I recently graduated this summer and I wish to carry on my studies with entry being 2017. I am interested in applying for a second Undergraduate Adult Nursing course however I am unsure about my eligibility for having my tuition fees paid for and any maintenance loans I can receive to help me while I study. I have been researching across the student finance and government webpages and I came across this.
'We intend that students studying nursing, midwifery and the allied health subjects as a second degree will also be able to get student loans.To support students who are planning to undertake nursing, midwifery and allied health professional subjects as a second degree, the government will put in place an exemption to enable these students to access the standard student support system, just like students studying for a first degree.
Does this mean I will receive full tuition fee payment and have access to full maintenance loans to help me with my studies?

The funding for NHS courses has not yet been fully released as yet.
If the NHS no longer funds these courses in the future then it is likely Student Finance will offer full funding for them as they do other courses, and as they are currently exempt from previous study rules, it's also likely this will continue.
Essentially, yes, you will be able to apply for funding for these courses as a second degree.
